Mrs. Yvonne Rousseau at the Organ

image0001.jpg

During my Guatemala trip, I met a woman who is a member of an organ historical society.  She mentioned that people tend to doze off whenever she starts talking about the instrument.  Naturally, I was all like, “Challenge accepted!”  As it turns out, organs are pretty cool.  They’re basically an instrument the size of an entire room – and, depending on the number of pipes, that can be pretty huge.  Nowadays, full-sized organs are pretty expensive and likely constructed only rarely, especially now that electric organs are a thing.  That means that every pipe organ, regardless of size or location, is part of a dying art form, and is potentially a historic landmark.

Also, nothing will challenge your ability to draw straight lines freehand quite like drawing organ pipes.
